. number one, expect a war on planned parenthood, romney in an interview with a local missouri reporter back in march. >> my test is simple. is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? on that basis you get rid of obama care. that's the first one. there are others, planned parenthood, we'll get rid of that. >> okay. there he is, romney chose a vp, by the way, paul ryan, who co-sponsored a, quote, personhood bill. with congressman todd akin aboard. that personhood bill basically guarantees if not the criminalization of abortion, something close to it. the republican platform is out of date. it calls for a human life amendment to the constitution to, quote, make clear the 14th amendment's protections apply to unborn children. unborn children at the age of a couple seconds have the right to property. romney has a right to support a supreme court justice, here's what he wants. >> hope to appoint justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade, therefore they return to
the federal teams, state an local teams that are in place. i'm confident that we're ready, but i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up and we will get through this. all right. >> what impact on the election? >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter they need in case of emergency, and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> and, of course, the election now, it is tuesday, the election is now one week away. the president has cleared his campaign schedule for tomorrow to deal with the after-effects of sandy. we had originally
're going to get rit of charitable deductions, won't get rid of homeowner, state and local. that's where all the money is. it's not little do dads here. joan, you take this one. he won't tell us. same question comes up wednesday night, can romney dodge ball it? can he say i'm not telling you how i'm going to do the major thing i promised to do, get the economy going through a tax cut but i'm not going to tell you how i'm going to do it. can he get away with it with even the mid-12348. >> i hope not. i think this is a moment for jim lehrerer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going goat rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset abou
into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good job against ryan, and if the president doesn't show up and isn't strong in the second debate, then you're going to have a tossup race. >> well, i would disagree with your approach, first of all. i don't approach it that way. that's going back and relegating all the old arguments. in spirit what i would do, unlike shrumy, i would take the big issue that is separating the candidates, don't get into the little trench warfare about what's your tax plan and where were you on medicare two weeks ago. i would say where did you stand on saving the american auto industry? you had one position, i had a
on bringing new york back. i think you're going to see a great local/state/federal effort to rebuild what's been shattered. it's what americans do best, when we put partisanship aside. >> and there's also a difference among the states, david. you know, the civil war sort of united the country as a country. but all the time, people say, oh, i just care about utah, i just care about virginia or something. i don't think people still think like that. there's tremendous national interest in new york, what happened on 9/11, and in this case. >> the governor just said, cuts against the core philosophy of the tea party and the far right republican party. >> so the war is -- you're not in the trenches? >> no, no, i think as we look ahead, you have to be realistic here. and while you and i and the governor believe in these communal values that unite us and that will guide us -- >> federal values. >> he was talking about the federal/state partnership, there are some, and i think paul ryan's in this camp, i'm not sure mitt romney is. >> romney said we ought to defund fema, period. >> privatize this,
you could take. for a lot of middle-class fame with pretty substantial state and local taxes, that would represent a massive tax increase. romney cannot defend this plan on its merits, so he simply says i'll negotiate this with congress. it doesn't matter what he negotiates, there's not enough money there. it's a simple matter of arithmetic. but he's being a smooth liar about this. >> is the mathematics policy? can you offset $5 trillion with big deductions by getting rid of them when he said tonight to accomplicer, i'm going to leave the mortgage preference, the charitable preference, what is left? >> first off, you're kind of misquoting what he said. number one, he said it's not a $5 trillion dr. >> 4.8. >> but it is. i don't care what he says, he's lying. it is $5 trillion. >> bob, let me make mire point. >> don't repeat his lie without any evidence. >> i'm not repeating it. the fact you call it a lie, you take that up with him. >> no, he's the one who's lying. >> let me make the point. how does it not -- >> the fact of the matter is he's identified that what he's going to
according to "the new york times" of protesters who were angry about the video and local terrorists. what's the case being made that that isn't the case? if that's not the case, what is the case? >> well, chris, look, as information is becoming available, the administration is making that available to the american people. this is a case where no one wants to get to the bottom of this more than president obama, more than secretary clinton. that's what they're focused on every day -- >> what's complicated now? it was a combination of protesters angry about a video and a group of local terrorists who saw an opportunity. >> well, look, i think it's a case -- i obviously don't work for the national security team. it's a case where they're continuing to investigate. there's an fbi, a congressional investigation going on right now, but ultimately, look, there's only one political party and one candidate who is making this a political issue, and that's unfortunate. >> well, i wouldn't take -- i'm independent. let me tell you what i think, stop saying there's an independent commission looking at t
that has the president up five. a poll from colorado, a local television station has the president up two in colorado. >> i saw another one that puts them even np. >> well, there's going to be a poll that comes out tomorrow, the 12 purple states including colorado, virginia, and ohio and the president is going to be i think ahead in all of those battlegrounds in the 12 purple states. that's a shift, by the way, from where gallup had it just a few days ago where they had mitt romney ahead by two in the purple states. so this thing is -- >> let's try something else. whenever i used to be good before i was doing television six days a week. you can pick an election by thursday before. >> that's right. >> all you had to do was thursday before, when "the washington post" asked for your pecks, you had to project which way it's going. is that still true today? >> yes. >> no. here is why. there's been so much money invested in field this year, much more so than ever before because back in the day it used to be you had $75 million. now these campaigns have a billion dollars each to put -- >> how ma
and an awful lot of prosperity from working nebraskans. >> we'll get to that thing locally in a moment, but, you know, there is a tradition in your state of moderate -- relatively conservative democrats, ben nelson that's still there leaving this year, did the voters of your state get the idea of a relatively conservative democrat, not everybody being like nancy pelosi who comes from your state, for example? >> yeah, no, it's not really about ideology. it's about willingness to say we've got to get this job done, being practical, looking at the numbers. if you look at the problem of social security and medicare, it's a $60 trillion unfunded liability. it's not caused by either party. we have overpromised. we have an obligation to the americans under 40, we have an obligation to fix it. it's not so much ideology, it's a willingness to work with people of the other party who also agree this is a problem that has to be solved, and they're willing to take heat for people in their own party as well. >> speaking of heat, you have a new ad going after your opponent for a lawsuit she filed 17 years
of huge deductions, homeowner deduction, charitable contribution, state and local tax, that's where all the money is. if he doesn't tell us that tonight, will the press attack him for not giving us the map? >> one of the things we've seen is voters are skeptical. he says, i'll cut tax rates by 20% across the board. it's revenue neutral. we can't tell you how it's revenue neutral, because as paul ryan said, it will take too long. >> will obama go after him, like kennedy did in '94? he'll say, mr. governor, that's what people want. >> we can't talk about the president's strategy. he has to stay cool. if jim lehrer doesn't do it, if the moderator doesn't do, it then the president may have to step in, depending on how romney performs. but if romney doesn't really make the case strongly, the president doesn't necessarily have to jump on him. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer the question. >> let lehrer try it. >> but i think the obama campaign is leery of being -- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best d
to explain how you're going to do it. yesterday romney himself told a local denver station that part of his tax plan might include a cap on deductions at 17,000 a person which would not hurt billionaires at all like him. let's take a look. >> you could say everybody's going to get up to $17,000 deduction and you can use your charitable deduction, your home mortgage deduction or others, health care deduction and you can fill that bucket, if you will, the $17,000 bucket and higher income might have a lower number or you could do it by the same method that bowles/simpson did it, which is limiting certain deductions but that's the sort of thing that -- >> well, his tighing would take him past 17%. his spokesman made clear, this is one of the policy options romney was considering. in other words, if you want specifics, don't count on this. howard, this is the problem the more he teases it and pulls back, the more he looks like -- >> the more he teases it, the more confusion he sews and a contrast still with his own situation. the guy who has 100 million ira, which is like unheard of. the guy who
'll be out of here by 9:00 local time. i have the secret service distract michelle while i hit the hotel gift shop for some kind of anniversary president. they had a denver broncos sweatshirt. she might like that. the hotel had some nice bathrobes for sale. that could be good. >> excuse me, governor, mr. president? >> i'm sorry, yeah, yeah. what's up? >> mr. president, governor romney has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no, you two go ahead. >> with me now is liz winsted, creator of the daily show and author of liz z free or die. and ma lee ka henderson. what did you think of what you saw so far ladies. is this going to educate america or deeducate us? what's all this satire going to do for us? >> liz, you go. >> okay. i think that anytime you shine a light on when powerful people are messing up, you do a service. so i think that's a good thing, and i think that "snl" a good t. and i think that "snl" this weekend, if that was a wash rag, they took it and they mine every piece of comedy. it bawas pretty impressive. >> once you say the conversation is ove
. thanks for joining us. this would normally be a local story but this is part of a much bigger story, this wacky, wacky, frightening storm that's hit us. >> reporter: it absolutely is, chris. i've been out here a couple hours and i must tell you that the wind gusts are picking up and becoming much more violent. police have created a collapse zone in the area immediately around this building that you can see where this crane is dangerously perched now in a place where they wanted to make certain they keep everybody as safe as possible. they have ordered people to evacuate the apartment buildings, the businesses, even the hotel that's right in that area because they don't know what's going to happen with this thing. authorities say at about 2:30 in the afternoon when they got the report that the crane had tipped, the wind was blowing at about 20 miles an hour then with gusts up to 40 miles an hour. that tipped this crane. i think the winds are much stronger than that right now. they want to make certain if this thing snaps off it doesn't go flying into an apartment building and then wh
